ArtSpark launched its flagship program, the ArtsLP (Arts Listening Project), in 2013. The ArtsLP interconnects rural, urban and regional arts ecosystems, facilitating sustainability strategies by engaging diverse voices and shared resources. It contributes a fresh approach to community planning, using technology in an interactive way to track data, archive resources and support emergent creative/artistic initiatives.
Three ArtsLP communities are on board in 2013: Albuquerque [NM], Silver City [NM], and San Francisco [CA], and at least two more communities coming on board in 2014… If you/your community wants to join the ArtsLP, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
